Contact: Jason Bull
Meet Jason Bull or “Jay” as most of his friends call him. Jason started his career in the wine industry in 1988 at Dry Creek Vineyards while majoring in Enology at Fresno State. After graduating, Jason moved north to Sonoma County to work With the Benziger’s of Glen Ellen. When the label was acquired by Hublein, Jason found himself in the heart of the Napa Valley in sales at the St. Helena Wine Center. During his time at the wine center, Jason was introduced to a who’s who of the Napa wine industry which led him to an Assistant Winemaker position at Flora Springs. At the same time, Jason did temporary work for Heidi Barrett at Paradigm, Screaming Eagle and Grace Family Wineries helping with the 1994 crush. After Flora Springs, Jason headed back to Sonoma briefly before taking a job at Von Strasser. While working for the Mayo family, Jason began consulting for Domain Danica of Healdsberg. During this time, Jason had a chance to work with many varietals including high-end Pinot Noir which would eventually become his passion. After leaving Von Strasser, Jason worked for a French barrel cooperage which gave him invaluable experience with barrel aging. As fate would have it, Oregon was one of his sales territories. This was Jason’s first chance to come to Oregon as he was offered a job at Laurel Ridge Winery. This is where he spent four years as the Winemaker and General Manager making multiple award winning wines from Chardonnay to Pinot Noir. Just before the crush of 2005 Jason was offered a job with David Hill Winery and gladly accepted. At David Hill, Jason oversees all vineyard activity as well as making all the wines. Jason also makes wine for several small producers at David Hill Winery. A few of them are La Dolce Vita, Kason Vineyards, Meier Farms Vineyards, and of course, Zimri Cellars. The Zimri Cellars label is marketed under the parent company J Bull Wines.
